Supermarket Swindle! [VIDEO]

The clip to the right is a taste of Robert Greenwald's latest project, "Supermarket Swindle". Greenwald, who went after Fox News' propaganda in "OutFoxed" and the world's biggest retailer in "Wal-Mart: the High Cost of Low Prices," now sets his sights on America's "supermarket titans" and the squeeze they've put on California grocery workers, who are poised to strike over the Wal-Martization of what were once solid middle-class jobs. Their problems -- declining wages, the loss of healthcare and guaranteed pensions and a concerted attempt to break their union -- are not isolated; they're problems that more and more American workers face.

Watch the clip and then sign the pledge not to shop in the "Big Three's" stores if they choose to lock out their workers rather than deal with them in good faith.

(Greenwald sits on the board of directors of IMI, AlterNet's parent organization.)
